What’s Needed to Get 100% Guaranteed Results Didn’t Shock Me

November 9, 2015 – 11:39 am
People pass over effective nutrition / exercise programs and stop following them because the guidance feels uncomfortable to the routine with which they've become habitualized. We stop not because it won't work but because we feel we can't or don't want to. It's not that programs are ineffective; compliance is. Solid programs are 100% effective when applied with 100% compliance, but you only need to be 80% compliant, over the course of a month, to get the bulk of what you've targeted as your goal. Trainers and companies want to strawman against boogeyman programs so you believe in their good programs and not "all of the junk." You'll stop buying more products, if you don't quit the current one. Your transactional relationship with them ends when you buy, so they won't tell you the truth: If you follow a program exactly, you're almost guaranteed total success. The fitness industry concocts "bro science" gobbledygook encouraging you to ...

Strength to Solve a Problem must be different than the strength which created it

November 9, 2015 – 11:37 am
Most coaches try to load with resistance the very activity that you're already repeatedly loading throughout your day. In their rush to make you stronger, they worsen the problems you had approached them to solve. The strength needed to create a solution must be opposite of the resistance which created it. Don't try to fight the pre-existing problem. Attack it from the opposite angle, and discover an opportunity making the problem obsolete. #ScottSonnon #TACFIT #511Tactical a2a_linkname="Strength to Solve a Problem must be different than the strength which created it";a2a_linkurl="http://www.rmaxinternational.com/flowcoach/?p=2775";

Generosity: The New Subjugation

November 9, 2015 – 11:36 am
Parents who generously rescue their child from the effort of learning to swim prepare them to drown. Coaches - their athletes to lose; Teachers - their students to choke. Trainers - their clients to fail. Generosity has become the new subjugation. The weak-willed, out of guilt and discomfort for the struggle of others, remove the opportunity for growth and make dependent the recipients of their generosity. True compassion involves watching others struggle knowing very well that they might fail, but also that success can only be earned, not given. It's going to be hard. That's how you know it's worth it. #ScottSonnon #TACFIT #511Tactical a2a_linkname="Generosity: The New Subjugation";a2a_linkurl="http://www.rmaxinternational.com/flowcoach/?p=2774";

Make Enemy of Pain and You Become Partner to Injury

November 9, 2015 – 11:34 am
One who makes enemy of his pain will become partner to injury. Pain isn't weakness leaving the body; pain shows you where strength has left it. Weakness hides under a canopy of your compensations, disguised as strengths. If it remains hidden, out of fear, ego or negligence, like a wound, it will fester and spread, until it forces you to rehabilitate its rupture. #ScottSonnon #TACFIT #511Tactical a2a_linkname="Make Enemy of Pain and You Become Partner to Injury";a2a_linkurl="http://www.rmaxinternational.com/flowcoach/?p=2772";

Recovery: The Hardest Work You Can Do

November 9, 2015 – 11:33 am
You bring a muscle to failure for it to grow. Yet, many believe only successful performance has value. The delicacy of those who never lose or fail inevitably breaks them during a real challenge. Resilience demands defeat, so toughness can build to resist it. Without falling, you cannot discover the omnipotence of getting up. If you fall down eight times, get up nine. On the ninth, you will know exactly how to keep your feet. You win, or you get tougher. #ScottSonnon #TACFIT #511Tactical a2a_linkname="Recovery: The Hardest Work You Can Do";a2a_linkurl="http://www.rmaxinternational.com/flowcoach/?p=2771";

Move with Purpose or Get Hurt without one

November 9, 2015 – 11:32 am
A mobile joint can move anyway it wants, a stable joint knows when not to. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. Move with a purpose, so you don't get hurt without one. #ScottSonnon #TACFIT #511Tactical a2a_linkname="Move with Purpose or Get Hurt without one";a2a_linkurl="http://www.rmaxinternational.com/flowcoach/?p=2770";

Equality or Equity

November 9, 2015 – 11:31 am
Your fear of what you don't know and can't do, doesn't mean others won't and shouldn't. Stop trying to cut other people's lines so you feel better about your length, and make your own line longer. We have mutated from a society that thrived on the celebration of individual exceptionalism to a commiserating henhouse berating those who stand out from the mob of mediocrity. The mob demands equitable exemption from work, creativity and dutifully putting in the time and effort to earn respect and privilege. Don't fear standing out. They'll certain try to pull you down and crawl over you like crabs in a bucket. But the only way to stand out is to accept that you'll be making yourself visible. Just remember, the mob only shoots arrows at the highest target. You can take it, if you don't let your fear of others success ...

No Sugar before 25 - No Heart; Sugar after 45 - No Brains

November 9, 2015 – 11:30 am
If you're not having sugar before 25, you have no heart. If you're having sugar after 45, you have no brain. Neither for taste nor for fuel, what you eat and drink chemically negotiates with your DNA how well and how long you live. When young, your vitality is sponsored by a genetic strategy to survive long enough to reproduce. By the time you're middle-aged, your vitality is entirely a product of your nutrition and movement. Have a heart, but use your head. #ScottSonnon #TACFIT #511Tactical a2a_linkname="No Sugar before 25 - No Heart; Sugar after 45 - No Brains";a2a_linkurl="http://www.rmaxinternational.com/flowcoach/?p=2768";

The Most Critical Hour of Your Day

November 9, 2015 – 11:29 am
The most critical window is the first hour after waking. Follow this process to keep a youthful physique (I'm 46): 1. Slow spinal mobility immediately out of bed: cat-cow, in particular, to reabsorb any bulging discs from horizontal decompression and natural disc expansion at night. 2. 8oz of water (and a short coffee if needed), then AM elimination. 3. 20 minutes of exercise sufficient to raise your temp enough to sweat (your catabolic window) 4. Breakfast front-loading your day's protein, with a complex carb; no simple carbs / sugars or fruits. #ScottSonnon #TACFIT #511Tactical a2a_linkname="The Most Critical Hour of Your Day";a2a_linkurl="http://www.rmaxinternational.com/flowcoach/?p=2767";
